Eva Longoria Is a Mom! Every Detail We Know About Her New Baby Boy
Eva Longoria has officially become a mother! The 43-year-old actress gave birth to her first child on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 in Los Angeles. She shares her new son with husband Jose Bastón, who she married in May 2016 in Acapulco, Mexico.
The couple broke the news to HOLA! USA, sharing, “We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing.” They also confirmed their new son’s adorable name: Santiago Enrique Bastón.
As blessed as Longoria feels, back in February 2018, she got real about the struggles of pregnancy. In speaking with Us Weekly, she claimed, “Every chance I got I took a nap!” As the director of Fox’s The Mick, Longoria admitted, “I thought they’re going to think I’m a terrible director because I’m just sleeping all the time!”
At the time, she was a little too preoccupied with her directing duties to focus on choosing a baby name. “Once I finish this pilot, I’ll be able to focus on getting ready for my little boy,” she said.
The star has also taken to social media to open up about her pregnancy progress. In March 2018, she joked about her clothes becoming too small for her growing baby bump. In an Instagram video, Longoria got candid with her fans. “Can I just show you guys that my sweaters don’t fit me anymore on my belly?,” she asked. “I try to keep pulling them down and they just go back up.”
Despite her normal clothes not fitting the same way, Longoria didn’t shy away from the public during her pregnancy. On top of staying active with exercise, she embraced her baby bump while hitting red carpets and even being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. According to E! News, celebrities such as Ricky Martin, Anna Faris, and Felicity Huffman attended the ceremony for Longoria’s new star in April 2018.
Longoria’s baby shower, of course, was nothing short of extravagant. Her friends and family threw her party at Lombardi House in Hollywood, E! News reported. “Guests had fun in the photo booth with props, and they printed out their photos that said ‘Baby Baston,'” a source described. “There was a Bloody Mary bar and a lot of rosé being passed around. They also had massage chairs and hair and makeup if anybody wanted to get glammed up.”
At the premiere of Overboard, Longoria gushed to E! News about how excited she was about her son’s arrival. “I can’t wait to meet him,” she shared. “I just can’t wait to see what his personality is like, what he looks like, how much hair he’s going to have. There’s so much to look forward to, and it’s becoming more real every day.”
According to HOLA! USA, Longoria and Bastón have recently moved into a new home after living in a Hollywood Hills mansion for 10 years. She put her home on the market in March 2018 to move into their new residence in Bel Air Crest, where she and Bastón plan to raise their new son.
Although Santiago Enrique is Longoria’s first child, Bastón is already a father to three children: Mariana, Natalia and José. He shares his children with his ex-wife, Natalia Esperón, but Longoria has already taken on the role of a stepmother to them, as well.
In March 2018, Longoria told HOLA! USA, “We have three children already, I have three stepchildren so it’s not like it’s anything new. We are enjoying it.”
